George in Hull, Massachusetts

George In Hull

Graphite Drawing

This drawing was done at the same time as the sketch of my baby daughter.  We lived in Hull, Mass.  It was a township that was on a finger of land  jutting into Boston Harbor below Quincy.  It was 1775. Boston was already celebrating the bicentennial. George was writing an outdoor drama about a Revolutionary War heroine named Susannah Rowsen and it was doubly relevant.  Not only was it the bicentennial of this country, it was the height of the Feminist Revolution. George directed the citizens of Hull in the summer outdoor drama staged in an old star shaped fort on the peninsula.
